Principal's Notes
Dear Parents and Families,

God of love, 
My prayer is simple: 
Your son, Jesus, suffered and died for me. 
I know only 
that I cannot have real strength 
unless I rely on you. 
I cannot feel protected 
from my many weaknesses 
until I turn to you 
for forgiveness and your unalterable love. 
Help me to share this 
strength, protection and love with others.

Below are some quick notes for the upcoming week:
  • Wednesday, 4/17: 3:15-4:00 Choir Practice in APR
  • Thursday, 4/18: Holy Thursday, 11:30 Dismissal
  • Friday, 4/19 - Sunday, 4/28: No School, Easter Break
  • Monday, 4/29: Third Trimester Interims
  • Friday, 5/10: 11:30 Dismissal (Professional Development)
  • May 6 - 24: Scantron Testing

Thursday is an 11:30 Dismissal. AfterCare is open until 6:00 PM.

We will hold a prayer service for all students in the morning in the cafeteria on Holy Thursday. The rest of the day will be one of prayer and reflection.

Parents, if you are applying for financial assistance through FACTS and have no uploaded all of the required documents, you will not be able to receive tuition assistance for the 2019-20 school year. You can bring your documents to the office to have them uploaded, but we cannot guarantee they will be accepted.

There will be no St. Michaels Minutes over Easter Break. We pray everyone has a blessed and safe Easter celebrating the resurrection of our Lord.

God bless,

Daniel Cinalli

Ms. Bastidas' dance club is wrapping up their winter session. The girls have been learning their routine for weeks, and will perform it in front of a packed house today at 4:00 in the cafeteria!
"Lent is a fitting time for self-denial; we would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty. Let us not forget that real poverty hurts: no self-denial is real without this dimension of penance. I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt." - Pope Francis
